In all seriousness, what the HELL is wrong with people nowadays!?
Four members of an Arizona family have been charged with murder in the death of a 10-year-old girl whose body was discovered locked in a box outside her family’s house. She had suffocated.
The charges were filed Thursday, a day after Phoenix police arrested the four.
Police released a statement saying the four relatives of Ame Deal had been entrusted with caring for her. The arrest came after police said they learned that the family routinely confined her inside the box when she misbehaved.
John and Samantha Allen, both 23, were charged with first-degree murder after confessing they had locked Deal in the box July 12, the statement said.
Cynthia Stoltzmann, 44, and Judith Deal, 62, were charged with child abuse and kidnapping after both admitted they had locked the girl in the box on previous occasions, it added.
As the aunt, Cynthia Stoltzmann, tried to cover up her heinous act she made this statement about her niece and mental “anguish”:
“I don’t break down well in front of other people, but when I’m by myself, I can lose it real easy,” Stoltzmann said. “She was an awesome hider, let me tell you. … There were places she would squeeze into that I didn’t think my dog could squeeze into.”
This a truly disgusting. How can you lock a child in a box at all, much less leave her there to die?? The court should give all these folks the death penalty…
